    You know the sort of thing….Surely?

    For me, it’s the deftness with which I flick a little finger downwards on lifting a beer glass from a damp beer mat. None of that “coaster hanging from the glass before dropping with a splat in to lunch” for me, oh no.

    Glass gripped with thumb and three fingers, and just on the moment of lift, the little finger shoots downwards, pinning the soggy coaster of doom to the table of destiny.

    So, what are your priceless little life skills that make you all of teh awsum?

    My eyesight involves me using spectacles for all close up stuff, but my job involves me needing to see well at all distances. I tend to wear my specs on my head, then a quick nod forwards brings them down onto my nose.

    I know, I know, it’s a skill…

    Recognising that you can not choose awesome, rather that AWESOME is bestowed on you by others.

    snap.

    I can snort a condom up my nostril and round the back of my throat. Pull it back out of my mouth and squeegee my sinus with it. But I dont think it’s that awesome and havent done it in public for 20 years 😉

    I am indeed that Great Person..

    As I look in the mirror (very often) I turn, take one last peek, as I leave it looking sideways and agree out loud that I am indeedy Most Awesome.

    It is ok to hand it out to yourself..

    Anyone else Most Awesome?

    As for techniques, erm.. I can windsurf a bit, so I get wet a lot, which makes me even more Most Awesome.

    I can too understand what Elf types, which in itself is a Most Awesome ability I have.

    And I stay on here, which when you look at it makes us All Most Awesome.

    My favourite skills are:

    1) The ability to gently close the fridge door with a trailing leg whilst spinning through 180deg away from aforementioned fridge.
    2) Being able to check neutral, remove seatbelt, lock steering, apply handbrake, turn off indicators and open car door in sequence at techno tempo.
    3) Being able to type my very loooong password quickly without looking and with a flair on the enter key at the end. *double festive power grab*
    4) Being able to remove the dog lead from the collar with what looks like a flick of the wrist but is actually very swift de-clasping.

    These and many more are the skills which keep life interesting

    Undo bras with my left hand. Through clothing. I have upset many of my female friends with that one, after a few drinks. Aren’t I awful.

    I can put my hands just in front of me and rotate them in opposite directions in circles. I can also clasp hands together and do the same with my thumbs…I’m a bit sad!

    Ahh but can you catch them behind your back, then place them on your head while speaking Russian?

    chvck – that reminds me of something this girl was demonstrating to her friend on the train a while ago. She could do all these tricks with her fingers she’d learnt in church meetings (not relevant, but that’s what she said!)

    Let me try to describe one.
    Hold your hands in front of your face with your index fingers touching
    Now with your left finger you draw a square (about 8″) in the air. Start at the top and draw downwards, then out, up, then back to where you started.
    Simultaneously, your right finger draws a straight line up and down.
    So for each line your left finger draws, your right goes first down, then up.

    It’s bloody hard to do!

    (She also did one with her little fingers and thumbs but that’s too hard to describe.)

    head while speaking Russian?

    I can do the speaking Russian part 😉

    I can use ticket machines and self service checkouts like a boss, If you hear “please wait for assistance” – you have failed.

    My skill was meant to be that I can throw a tea bag in a cup from about 4 metres (this distance across my kitchen and out the hall door a bit when I was young).

    However I’ve been practising this from about the age of 10, 20 years, and although Im alot better now (ie most tea bags land near the cup) I’m still lucky if about 1 in 10 go in.
